No 2 Coy
received your letter O.K. and also the tobacco and was very pleased to get both I can assure you for I had not had a letter from you for a long time.
So you have got home again at last have you well I must say you have had quite a Holliday old Kid about 3 months wasn't it I would like to get 3 months myself I might be to look in by supprise there you know but I think I will have to get married and settle down over here by the way the war looks at present first I must get a couple of Hundred Dollars you know to buy coat and shoe polish to dry our boots and the polish them you know but I should be able to raise the price in 2 or so months or years, so you are sending me some more socks Eh Kid. I have had about 6 prs lately and they come in very Handy you know for cold foolin Instructors Ha Ha but I guess I will soon have to warm my feet for all fit men have to go to France pretty soon but I don't know how soon
Oh by the way you don't need to save any booze this Xmas for me as I don't think I shall be able to get as far as Bdn this Xmas as it is a little off my route so you can lick up my share.
Well I don't know that there is any more to say and you'll all have to excuse Xmas presents this year for Im dead broke and have been for some time it takes me all my time to buy smokes and I can't allways do that.
Well Good bye Kid
